Newbie in Galveston, TX

Hello folks,
Just bought a 2002 Cambiocorsa Coupe. 33k miles, under $20k. Sebring blue with a very light tan and blue interior. Very sharp car. I drove it back to Galveston from Dallas (300 mi) and it ran perfectly.

I am a retired guy who loves tinkering cars & motorcycles. I've owned many over the years, some exotic, some economical. I like this Maserati a LOT. Incredibly gorgeous and competent car! I look forward to helping out and being helped in this forum.

Cheers,
Charlie

Welcome. I also have a 2002 Coupe. You will find lots of helpful advice here on maintaining that car.

$20k is a great price. Be prepared though, if it still has the original clutch, that you'll have to have that replaced at some point. I had to do that at 22k miles, and it cost around $5k at the dealer. The new clutch parts are supposed to last longer than that.

You will know it's starting to go if it feels like it's slipping, or falls out of any gear into neutral. Or, like me, when you're trailing clouds of burnt clutch smoke flying down the highway!

Other than that, my Coupe also runs perfectly. They are solid machines.

Welcome. I am in Houston and keep my car, a 2004 Coupe in Spicewood. The guys here are a real help, and I am becoming more knowledgeable of certain things like installing the DBW and exhaust mods. Enjoy the car, they are a lot of fun.

They still have those, right?!?

Moderators...can you add a tongue in cheek smiley called, "This thread is worthless without pictures."!!! LOL

You can find and example of it at ApriliaForum sponsored by AF1 Racing, inc.

Seriously, we need pics!!
